I can never remember: "cree-tan" or "kret-in"? The former of the isle, the latter of misanthropic tendencies? I'll stop now, or soon we'll be discussing the obscure and arcane, like "orificia", and Rob will have some work to do hereabouts.

Either way, he certainly is...er, Ted that is...

Cretin: one afflicted by cretinism, stunted mental and physical development resulting from a thyroid deficiency, but more generally used these days to denote brainless stupidity.
Cretan: a native of Crete

Of course as Epimenides the Cretan said 'All Cretans are liars.'

But was he telling the truth?

Those damn vowels get me every time! I knew it all made sense somewhere, somehow...cretins in Crete is just too much to ponder.

This brings back memories of Greek Tales, our own mortality, and movie quotes of Kirk Douglas doing his best with Homer (and the re-write, a la Hollywood style...simplify, and they will grasp it; worked for me).

Unlike Kirk, I'd find it hard to rebuff some hottie with an offer of immortality on a scenic isle over-run with nymphs, and I know I would jump at even a bargain basement offer on a new lumbar region.

not surprising that a man of your advanced years would be suffering vowel difficulties

I just signed on as a truck driver for Crete Carriers starting in June. I guess that makes me a Cretan, or does it make me a Cretin for being a stupid truck driver?

Except for my vociferous, mescreant posts,(excuse the Anglo-French)this thread is pure gold. Indeed a fine day
today :) Life is good and so is ale!

Thought I'd share a photo of my BBQ. Make my steak!

From what I've seen going on lately this place was greatly in need of a little lighthearted tomfoolery.

How's things with you, Earl?

I know just what you mean - things were always on the up and up whenever Jon was in the house. I hope he's doing ok wherever he is. Have to say I've had better runs of luck than lately but I'm not here to complain! It's good to see you on such fine form.

yet if it was someone who you really liked politically you would not put the news up.

I notice that on both "sides" to berate, demonize and scorn the peeps they hate.

Personally, I'm getting sick and tired of such brat behavior on ALL sides. Tell me something nice about him or don't you care - LOL. I think Obama and even bill mahar have some positive qualities. Don't be a hater, brother! I should know!

"Don't be a hater, brother!"

not really hating...

Ted's one helluva guitarist...one of the idols of my youth... and I don't hate him for his extreme views. I might think he's crazy, but I don't hate him.

And I posted with no editorial comment. If a liberal nut job was the subject of a thread here and I found something related, I'd post it as well.

Sarah Palin is a scum bitch, right? If she was a lib with the same personality, you'd love her! I can hear your denials now - haha.

Be careful that you don't turn into the peeps you hate. Hatred has a way of doin that, weedhopper ;-)

I'm just learning that myself
